Great article on sachin Tendulkar

TIME Magazine
on Sachin Tendulkar:

When Sachin
Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to
face one of the finest bowling
attacks ever assembled in cricket,
... Michael Schumacher was yet to
race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong
had never been to the Tour de
France, Diego Maradona was still
the captain of a world champion
Argentina team, Pete Sampras had
never won a Grand Slam.
When Tendulkar embarked on a
glorious career taming Imran and
company, Roger Federer was a
name unheard of; Lionel Messi
was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was
an unknown kid in the Jamaican
backwaters. The Berlin Wall was
still intact, USSR was one big, Dr
Manmohan Singh was yet to
"open" the Nehruvian economy.
It seems while Time was having
his toll on every individual on the
face of this planet, he excused
one man. Time stands frozen in
front of Sachin Tendulkar. We
have had champions, we have
had legends, but we have never
had another Sachin Tendulkar and
we never will.
